Evan Meyer-Scott; Director of Quantum Processors, Photonic, Inc. will speak on “Paths to Repeaters” at IQT Canada 2023.
Dr. Evan Meyer-Scott is the Director, Quantum Processors, at Photonic, Inc. He got his start in quantum information at the University of Waterloo, obtaining his PhD in 2013 under Professor Thomas Jennewein, where he built photon sources, measured entanglement, and played with QKD systems. He spent time as a visiting researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, where he was part of the team to measure a loophole-free violation of Bell’s inequality. After a postdoc in integrated quantum optics in at the University of Paderborn (Germany), Evan returned to Canada to join the startup G2V Optics. There he managed two product development streams, including systems to improve and tailor plant growth with light, and highly-accurate solar simulators, one of which was delivered to NASA for pre-spaceflight testing of its OSAM-1 mission. Returning to the quantum fold he joined Photonic in 2022, overseeing a rowdy but loveable group of physicists, engineers, and mathematicians seeking to build a fault-tolerant photonically-linked silicon spin based quantum computer.

IQT Canada 2023 is the tenth global conference and exhibition in the highly successful Inside Quantum Technology series.
This event is Canada’s Quantum Computing Event, focusing on Ecosystems for Quantum Readiness. A number of vertical topics encompassing more than 30 panels and talks from over 80 speakers will provide attendees with a deep understanding on state-of-the-art developments of the future quantum ecosystems as well as the current impact of quantum computing technologies.
The conference brings together corporate management, entrepreneurs, end users, technology providers, infrastructure partners, researchers and investors who are working on the current future developments of the quantum ecosystem. IQT Canada is organized by 3DR Holdings, IQT Research, INTRIQ, and the Governments of both Canada and Quebec. The June conference will be an “in-person” event to ensure maximum networking and discussion and will take place at Centre Mont-Royal in Montréal (Québec), Canada.
